Hello, just signed up for ATS. I've come across these forums a few times over the years but always lurked, however now I am more interested in
participating in some topics and even seeking answer to some questions I have.
I can't post in the relevant section yet since I'm new, so I'll pose my questions here and hopefully someone can share some insights or point me in
the right direction. I recently obtained a couple palm/worry stones made of different minerals; one is nuummite and one is laboratite. They're very
interesting to me, and I just think they're cool and like to have them if for no other reason than because I like to work with my hands and have
something to manipulate mindlessly when doing things.
I've read about these two substances, and evidently 'crystals' have a large following and long history in humanity. Different stones possess
different spiritual, healing, and even magical properties according to some. I find things like this interesting; a seemingly inexplicable phenomena
experienced by hundreds, if not thousands of people over a long period of time. No science to it as I've seen, but all these people are experiencing
something similar. These 'crystal' enthusiasts never seem to have any logical or scientific backing to anything they say (which is why I am seeking
objective information here, if there is any). It is entirely possible, even likely, that their beliefs are rooted in SOMETHING though, and they have
just misinterpreted or misconstrued the truth of these objects.
What's the truth about crystals and 'magical stones', does anyone have any good insights/resources/information pertaining to these things? Thanks,
and nice to meet you.
